54 Haig Ave  – Reduced $737,000


Features and Opinion

What the listing agent says:

West Exposure! Watching Sunsets From Your Backyard Setting Over The Exclusive Hunt Club’s 3rd Hole! This Bungalow Is Ideal For Empty Nesters Who Appreciate Nature And Quiet Evenings. Open Concept Main Floor With A Warm Gas Fireplace To Gather Around. This Is An Opportunity To Own A Special Parcel Of Serenity So Close To Everything Toronto Has To Offer.

What we like about this property:

  • Backs onto a golf course
  • It is detached
  • It has a wide lot (25ft)
  • It has been reduced and is now a reasonable price.
  • The Birchcliffe area is developing quickly .
  • A short walk to some very expensive real estate
  • The nearby retail strip on Kingston Rd is improving.

Final Thoughts:

There aren’t many opportunities to buy a house that backs onto a golf course in Toronto for $734,000, regardless of how small it is. This property has many future potential uses, including as a ‘top-up’ candidate for a larger home or as a nice setting for an empty nestor or retirement property. A few houses on Haig Ave have already been ‘topped-up’, including countless homes in the area. Over the last couple years this area has been a value play for speculators and while the market has changed, there are only a few lots that overlook the 3rd hole of the Toronto Hunt private golf course.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD: Birchcliffe-Cliffside 


Views command attention and this Scarborough community has superb sights to see. Birch Cliff is a reputable, family oriented neighbourhood set among the scenic background of the Scarborough Bluffs and Lake Ontario. Kingston Road is a major street that curves its way through the middle of this area. The yearly Birch Cliff community parade which is held in May is hosted along Kingston Road.


Two distinct residential enclaves within the greater Birch Cliff area include the private “Fallingbrook” community, situated west of the Toronto Hunt Club to the south of Kingston Road, and the “Birch Cliff Heights” community, located on the north side of Kingston Road, between Birchmount and Kennedy Roads.


Homes for sale in Birchcliffe- Cliffside may largely be owned by residents with ancestral backgrounds from the British Isles. There are high percentages of people with English, Scottish and Irish heritage living in this neighbourhood, almost half the population.


Birchcliffe-Cliffside is a product of the baby boom and mass expansion of Toronto in general. Many of the homes were built in the early to mid-1960s and include an excellent selection of bungalows, storey-and-a-half houses as well as detached, two-storey homes that showcase Tudor, Edwardian and Cape Cod designs.


This community’s original housing stock predates to the 1910s through the 1650s. Birchcliffe -Cliffside also includes a rather great number of contemporary homes that have been built in the 1980s and 1990s.


“Fallingbrook” is a district that is very well liked and in demand is known for its verdant ravine landscape and marvelous manor homes that overlook Lake Ontario. Fallingbrook is also full of a big number of houses that back onto the scenic grounds of the Toronto Hunt Club.
